{ rich & humble like a tiny seed }

1 cup almond flour                                                                      3 mashed ripe bananas
1 cup light spelt flour                                                                  1/4 cup almond milk
1 tbsp baking powder                                                                  6 Tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp salt                                                                                 6 Tbsp coconut oil
1 cup chopped nuts ( i used hazelnuts)                                                       
2 handfuls chopped dark chocolate
4 tbsp poppy seeds


Melt the coconut oil in a hot water bath. Chop your preferred nuts and chocolate. Mash the bananas with a fork in a bowl. Add the other wet ingredients. In a large bowl combine the flours, powder and salt. Combine wet and dry ingredients together. Fold in the nuts and chocolate pieces and only stir around a few times carefully. Sprinkle with the poppy seeds to cover the top of the bread. Take a silicon or non silicon loaf tin ( with added baking paper) and bake at 350F / 175c for about 45 minutes. Time may vary depending on your oven, but do the knife test and you will see if it is baked through. Let it cool before slicing. 
Lasts for 3-4 days. Enjoy!

Don’t know what to do with those too ripe bananas laying around in your kitchen? Always a good idea to turn them into a rich & dense banana bread! I like it toasted with jam, drizzled maple syrup, plain or with some soup. Bread gives you many different choices to enjoy it with!
Got some valentine who could use some love? Give him/her/them this bread filled with so much taste and love. At all events it will show somebody you care and love since it is a homemade, ridicolously good smelling, fresh baked bread! Who says no to that? There is still chocolate involved…just sayin’!

Hug your valentine, turn on some music, mash a few bananas, bake, put your favourite cozy socks on, make a syrup-y mess in your kitchen & enjoy yourself and the bread and life and… ( approved to be qualified for any day not just valentines day friends…)!

Love always,
